    Has anyone tried removing ethanol either small scale as in the video above or up scaling for MV use? On a trip to Bicester Heritage I found these:- Leaded or Unleaded ethanol-free petrol and Ethanil kit to remove ethanol from petrol:- https://www.classic-oils.net/Ethanol-Free-Fuel/

    US paint colour

    The article on this Harley says that it has been painted in Federal Standard 383 but there isn't a Federal Standard 383 so, I assume, that it is really:- Colour Range: Federal Standard 595 Colour reference: 34094 Description: Green 383 camouflage https://eu.tallahassee.com/story/news/2017/03/01/local-harley-davidson-techs-vets-build-wwii-themed-bike/98303830/

    If you search "dark olive" on E-Paint only a BS number no RAL number:- Colour Range: BS 4800/5252 Colour reference: 10 C 39 Description: Dark olive / Saluki / Seaweed / Riverbed https://www.e-paint.co.uk/search_colour.asp Searching "olive drab" gives you the RAL, BS and other numbers but the olive green is not the same for each number.
